Animal Cruelty Awareness

After thinking over the web video assignment, I chose animal cruelty as my social issue even though I knew it would be difficult for me as I am very passionate about this issue. I chose to focus on abuse of dogs because I was a volunteer at my hometown humane society, and in that time, I saw too many sickening animal abuse and neglect cases.

I decided to use sproutbuilder to make my web video. My experience with this application was good, except for the fact that I could not figure out how to make the video end at my last slide and make the music fade out. If anyone can help me with this, it would be much appreciated. When you watch the video, you will see what I am talking about. Despite this frustrating issue, I enjoyed making the video, and I am proud that I actually taught myself to use this application. I think that this is good experience for what we might have to do in a communications profession.

You can watch the video here.

Sherry,
My name is Joey Mucha and I am a marketing manager at Sprout. I just watched your video (nice choice of music Jump Little Children - Cathedrals). Very emotional and great use of Sprout. Using pages and timers, there may be a way to accomplish the transitions you are you requesting. If you need assistance, please contact me joey at sproutinc dot com.

Sherry, unfortunately, I share your pain. I also used sprout and was not able to figure it out!

However, I would like to comment on Joey Mucha's well written response! So many times during the semester, we have been taught how NOT to respond to comments, no matter what they say, and Mucha's comment was the perfect way to respond to your post!

Your video truly portrayed the pain in which these animals have experienced. There were definite times when I had to turn my head. Great cause to spread awareness about and wonderful job on your video.

Way to go you---getting a comment from Sprout themselves. That's awesome. Maybe you have a new found talent.
